George Brown launches Career Development Practitioner Program

May 28, 2018

George Brown College has announced that it will launch the Career Development Practitioner Program in September of 2018. According to a George Brown release, the three-semester program will replace the previous diploma program in this area. “Employers said that they are looking for the degree or diploma plus the specialized training. So, we're trying to meet industry demands as the profession itself changes and becomes more credentialized,” stated Program Coordinator Gillian Johnston. In addition to focusing on career development, professional practice, ethics, and individual counselling and coaching, the program will incorporate training in social media and evolving communications technologies. The release adds that a work placement program will provide students with a pathway into the field. George Brown
